BLACKSTONE ACADEMY - Rhode Island School District

About School District: Blackstone Academy was established in 2002 as a small, public high school of choice for students from Central Falls and Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The school was founded to give students in these communities the option of attending a college-preparatory high school that connects learning to the community. Through participation in our signature Community Improvement Projects, Blackstone students learn skills that will benefit them as they learn how to become real world problem solvers. Rigorous coursework prepares our students for college and other programs of higher education. The mission of Blackstone Academy Charter School is to build a strong community of learners and leaders. Our small educational environment helps foster independent inquiry, teamwork, and communication. Our students develop the skills to solve problems and use their voices in ways that lead to success in the academic, social, and professional arenas. They demonstrate their achievements through a process of discovery, presentation, and reflection. Community involvement and community improvement are key themes at BACS. In addition to classes, our portfolio system structures the progression of their learning by having students study themselves and their relationships to others, move forward with an exploration of the local community, and ultimately integrate an understanding of the wider world as students become responsible, motivated, life-long learners.
